Answer: First of all: Scrubbing relentlessly is VERY BAD. It will make your skin red and irritated. And also dry out your skin- so now your skin will produce MORE grease.
You dont want that! You cannot scrub off pimples. They need to dry themself and not thru scrub.
I also have had pimples ever since I be about 14.
I tried every product out there: Neutrogena, Clean and Clear, Clearasil, etc.
I used Proactive for 4 years and it help get my acne under control inwardly the first 2 weeks. Recently I stopped using it though even though I have a new pack. I have alot of experience with acne and so far I am almost 100% sure that if you use a 3 step proces (Cleanse, Tone, Treat) it help the most.
I found a better cure and cheaper too: witchhazel and vicks. I didn't want to try it at first but am glad I did.
Check out this link. It explains witchhazel for acne and proactive as well.It also explains other solutions for acne. There are also other usefull tips on here to clear up acne.
But this is what i do: Before bed I wash my face next to an acne wash with micro beads(Clearasil Ultra) apply the witchhazel and a especially light layer of vicks. Only apply vicks to the frontage, not body!! And go to sleep.
In a few days you already see that you aren't forming new pimples.
To treat ones you own right NOW, use witchhazel and Neutrogena On The Spot or Clearasil Spot treatment on your pimples..
there is a treatment/ cream from America called terminator it works really capably for my brother if you chose to use this one it can be bought of eBay for i think five pound...if it isn't too serious you could try using vitamin C with zinc....
Also if you want to clear up scarring use aloe vera as it have healing purposes in vocabulary of scarring plus burns too:D hope it clears up Apply lime juice and rose water on the acne artificial area and leave it for 30 minutes. Wash your facade profusely with lukewarm water to catch perfect cure for acne. Log on to http://tipsfromruby-acne.blogspot.com/ for a few home made tips to heal acne.
my intact family uses proactiv and it works really really well, but you hold to use it religously or it loses its effectivness, also washing your face more repeatedly helps prevent dirt from cloging your pores and helps to prevent acne Make a soft mass of 1 teaspoon honey with 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon powder apply on face for an hour or two and swab .It is an natural remedy for acne.
